With its abundant and beautiful waterfront property, easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, numerous recreational options, and great nearby dining and attractions, Crystal River is quickly being discovered as one of the nicest areas in the state.

The Crystal River and Homosassa River both wind through the area. These spring-fed rivers are incredibly clean and clear, maintaining a mild 72-degree year round temperature.

Crystal River Fishing

Swimmers, boaters, and fishermen can all appreciate these sparkling waters and the variety of wildlife that live in and around them. It is not uncommon to see the county’s most famous seasonal resident, the manatee, as it surfaces for air or rolls playfully through the water.

The rivers find their way into the Gulf of Mexico and provide easy access to the open waters for boaters. Saltwater fishing in the gulf is excellent and exciting.

For those preferring to keep both feet on dry land, there are plenty of other recreational opportunities. Golf is one of the biggest industries in the county and there are a number of fine, world-class courses within minutes of Crystal River.

The Plantation Golf Resort is one of the best courses around. With an 18-hole championship course that will test golfers of every skill level, the Plantation also offers a 9-hole short course for polishing those intermediate shots.
